If you're hosting a large party and need to cook a large batch of rice, do it in a slow cooker, or a crock pot. You'll be able to make a large amount of rice at one time and keep it warm for a few hours. Keeping cooked rice warm in a slow cooker is ideal during get-togethers when guests show up at different times. You'll always have warm rice on hand to serve up as part of a main course, such as gumbo, or as a side dish.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Cook white or brown rice in a slow cooker or crock pot following the package directions; the typical proportion is 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of water.

  2. 2

    Add butter or margarine to taste to keep the cooked rice from sticking together.

  3. 3

    Turn the slow cooker or crock pot off when the rice is done. Keep the cooked rice in the pot and cover it with the lid; the rice will stay warm in a slow cooker or crock pot for two to three hours.
